Book Review: Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman - Reviewed by Larissa (18 Jul 2011)
Odd's father died when he was still young, it was also about this time that Odd had the accident that left his right leg crushed. Odd never really did fit in. So when one Winter refused to end and threatened the coming of Spring, Odd left the confines of the village for the woods, for peace. And it is there he makes some extraordinary friends.
Odd and the Frost Giants is a journey into the past where the Gods of Norse mythology come to life, only to be saved by a twelve year old boy. When a fox, an eagle and a bear seek help to defeat the frost giants whose very presence threatens an eternal winter it is an unlikely hero who comes to their aid. A timeless narrative style conveys a story that is a little Odd but has a Giant heart.
